Hong Kong Council of the Church of Christ in China (HKCCCC) General Secretary Rev Dr Eric So has encouraged the church that a meaningful Christmas season is still possible even though there will likely be no Christmas services, celebratory events, and parties due to the pandemic. In his Advent Message, the General Secretary wrote about how Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and the wise men’s spirituality shows that this year’s Christmas can be celebrated differently.

“When we can carry out submissive and obedient attitudes in exercising the Christian discipline, living out a praising and peaceful life at home and in workplaces, sharing the good news of Emmanuel with others and dedicating ourselves for God’s mission, people will see our witness and acknowledge that Christ is in the midst of Hong Kong,” said Rev Dr So.
